ASUS Fonepad note FHD 6: Phablet With Intel Inside

The Fonepad 6 has good facilities including a FullHD display and stylus, device but too thick and heavy. In addition, you miss the LTE.

The first Asus Fonepad, which appeared in the spring of this year, made mainly by its price of just € 230 (EIA) of talk, otherwise it could convince with an aluminum shell and brisk Intel Atom processor. To make calls, the 7 ‘device. suitable given his size at most about the headset.

Now put on the IFA with the ASUS ASUS Fonepad note FHD 6, which differs quite considerably from the first model in the series. So emphasis is rather on good technical facilities and less on a compact or elegant appearance. Because the optional white or black 6-inch Phablet this time in an unspectacular plastic housing, which even with 210 grams neatly in the weight goes and with slightly chubby 10.6 mm depth.


This solves the Super IPS +-display with sharp 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (FullHD) and comes to a high pixel density of 367,2 ppi. In the first notebook journaltest a crisp sharp reproduction is to certify the screen, but the viewing angle stability there are prints.

The device is powered by a 1.9 GHz Intel Atom Z2580 dual-core processor, which pulses with 2 GHz per core and is supported by a 2 GB large memory. In the first Hands-On test of AppDated , the installed Android 4.2.2 ran pretty liquid. The internal memory is 16 GB and you can extend externally via MicroSD.

Criticism of the stylus, praise for the camera

As for the Samsung Galaxy touch 3 a stylus is also at the Fonepad 6 on board, which protrude into the unit, if it is not needed. As in the note, also here your own notes applications are installed. But both AppDated and notebook journal had on the functionality of the stylus to expose something, here pen of the touch the nose of S probably outranks in terms of ease of use.

The 8-megapixel back camera, which rotates and FullHD videos, earned good grades, and wait there lab tests, however, in notebook journal. A 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera is also on board. Other features include a 3,200 mAh battery, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS/GLONASS, HSPA + and Wi-Fi. Unfortunately is waived on NFC, as well as on LTE, which is a great pity given the otherwise great facilities. Good to imagine that ASUSwanted to allow a reasonable price, and therefore on these features has refused.

Conclusion & release date

Still, it is not known when and at what price the ASUS Fonepad note FHD 6 in the shops comes. I type even at a relatively affordable price around €450, so that one distinguishes own high-end devices such as the Padfones. Otherwise the Phablet would be but probably fast to the shop keeper, because for some extra money there are better equipped and especially lighter devices of this type. Can we still surprise us, like the first intensive tests fail.
